Pasta Pelican fuels patrons with a menu of Italian pasta, pizza, and chicken in a restaurant and lounge that overlooks the sparkling waters of Oakland–Alameda estuary. Fireplaces cast a flickering glow ideal for shadow-puppet performances of Hamlet across dining areas, where eaters ignite appetites with starters of crunchy fried calamari dunked in lemon-caesar dressing.
Chefs toss pasta in a spicy tequila-lime sauce with veggies and fresh cilantro to create the fettuccine di tequila, and they crown the ricotta-stuffed tortellini with chicken, artichoke hearts, and a creamy sauce. The vegetariano pizza stocks a bubbly crust with enough flora, including zucchini, peppers, onions, mushrooms, and kalamata olives, to satisfy a vegan sumo wrestler, .
Waterfront views spill through the lounge’s window-lined walls, bouncing sunlight onto exposed wooden beams and lofted TVs. An alcove for live musicians draped with black and red curtains emits sweet melodies and operatic readings of the menu on select evenings.
Boats slowly glide across the blue water of the Oakland-Alameda Estuary, their white sails puffing and billowing in the gentle breeze. Some dock in guest berths reserved for guests of Pasta Pelican. With its windows overlooking the water, this restaurant provides the perfect location for gazing at the passing vessels or shouting at the seagulls for refusing to wax your boat.
Inside, glowing embers flicker from the dining room's stone hearth, lighting the dark wood tables where guests savor classic appetizers or soups, such as the clam chowder. Pastas dressed in rich sauces or tender cuts of veal, chicken, and seafood make up the main course. Each Friday night, live musical performances draw crowds to the dance floor in Pasta Pelican's lounge as bartenders pour glasses from the extensive wine list.
